The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
By Amanda May
Undoubtedly set in one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, this historic luxury resort is a popular choice amongst brides and grooms, as well as travelers to the region.
The journey to the resort is a beautiful experience in and of itself. The scenic drive takes you past snow-capped Rocky Mountain peaks, glacial melt rivers, mammoth glaciers and icefields and a variety of resident wildlife.
When you arrive, you’ll probably just have to look around and gather yourself for a minute because the view is so breathtaking.
Take your pick from the elegant and polished, yet relaxed and inviting guest rooms. Comfortable guestrooms, suites, specialty rooms and primo Fairmont GOLD rooms are available at this Fairmont location.
The Fairmont GOLD rooms are part of a six million dollar expansion that was completed in 2008. Something of a hotel within the hotel, these rooms are the finest suites in the Rocky Mountains and offer a high level of personalized service.
The luxury resort has Internet access should you choose to stay connected, both in the room and in several common areas.
Also on grounds, you can let go of every last bit of tension at the Escape Spa & Salon and dine in a variety of delicious restaurants!
The resort also offers excursions and programs for guests wanting to get to know the area. The Mountain Heritage program has guests taking guided casual walks around the lakes, and hiking and mountaineering the tallest peaks and deepest canyons.
Mindfulness In The Mountains is another example program offered at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. This weekend program offers a variety of body, mind and spirit practices that will heighten your capacity to observe, see and feel.
Plus, Mother Nature has provided one of the biggest playgrounds right outside the door. Ski, ice-skate, horseback ride, hike or snowshoe, depending on the season.
